Worbla's Black Art - various sizes


Worbla’s Black Art – it’s smoother, it’s black, and it’s beautiful!

WBA is a thermoplastic which comes as a sheet, but can be used as modelling putty as well, just like Worbla’s Finest Art (WFA). It is also activated by heat (80-90°C is recommended) and can be re-activated as often as you like.
Just as all the materials of the Worbla’s Art Series, the Worbla’s Black Art (WBA) is solvent-free and contains no hazardous substances.

WBA has all the popular advantages of the WFA, and contains extra glue and provides excellent modelling features. In addition it is extremely fine. Hence you got a very nice and smooth surface without refinishing. Using modelling tools you can create amazingly smooth surfaces with the WBA and carve out details & intricacies. Because of it is pigmented black, most of the times a primer coat is not necessary.

Because of its highly fine structure the WBA stretches very evenly which is useful when moulding 3 dimensional shapes. It sticks to itself and can be used in conjuction with the original Worbla's Finest Art.

All kind of colours such as acrylics or spray paints can be used for painting the Worbla’s Black Art. Sometimes it might be a good idea using a plastic primer or a layer of wood glue before painting.

Sample and A4 sizes are sent as flat sheets, other sizes are sent rolled.
